Hyderabad Police Reunite Dubai Sisters With Their Mom After 28 Years

Hyderabad:“We had never thought we would meet our mother in this lifetime. The almighty had fixed the meeting and We are glad that we got to see our mother after 28 years,” said the two sisters from UAE who were reunited with their mother in the city on Thursday.

It was like a real-life drama resembling a Bollywood potboiler, a 60-year-old woman from Hyderabad was today reunited with her two daughters after a gap of 28 years.

The Hyderabad police(South Zone) helped the two daughters to trace their biological mother, who was been separated from their father more than 15 years ago.


DCP South Zone Mr. V. Satyanarayana said that 60-year-old Ms. Nazia Begum, a native of Santoshnagar here, had married a UAE national Rasheed Eid Obaid Rifaq Masmari in 1981 at a Qazi’s office in Old city.

“After few years of marriage, she left for UAE where she and Rasheed lived in Fujairah province. As Rasheed was already married, Nazia faced immense problems there,” police stated in a release.

During her stay of four years there, Nazia had Ayesha Rasheed eid Obaid and Fatima Rasheed eidObaid.

However, Nazia was thrown out by Rasheed who divorced her and sent her back to India without her daughters.

Since she came from a humble background, Nazia’s family members in Hyderabad could not do much to help her, but married her off to a fruit vendor from Bidar in Karnataka, the release said.

About 28 years later, now Ayesha (33) and Fatima (32) came searching for her in Hyderabad this January. When they approached Satyanarayana for help, but they only had an old photograph of their mother.

The DCP said, “They brought old photographs and sought for our help. I promised to try our best. We circulated copies of the photos in the old city area. After asking hundreds of people and following many leads, we traced this woman.”


Nazia(mother) had obscure memories of her daughters and all she could remember was that her younger daughter had six fingers.

A meeting was fixed at Deputy Commissioner’s office at Purani Haveli here where Nazia and few of her relatives waited anxiously.

Emotions filled the room when Ayesha and Fatima, now in their 20s, moved forward and gave a hug to Nazia, which lasted for ten minutes.
